Next time your computer says "missing operating system" try this:

1. Boot from Win95 Starup disk.
2. Copy to your C:\ directory

If you have not created Win95 startup disk, you can do that by going to
Control Panel and double click on "Add/Remove Programs" and then Click on
"Startup Disk"

Your crashes are probably caused by an entry in AutoExec.Bat file.
